Jimmy "Santiago" McKinn was taken from his home in New Mexico by Geronimo and his runaway band of Chirichua Apaches in September, 1885. The boy was well treated during the six months that he lived with the Apache, assimilated to their lifestyle and learned to speak their language. 

When Geronimo surrendered to General George Crook at Sonora, Mexico in March, 1886, the boy was found among the small band of warriors, women, and children traveling with GeronimoMcKinn cried when taken from the Apaches to be returned to his original family, a fact widely reported in the newspapers.

Traveling with General Crook, photographer C.S. Fly, of Tombstone, Arizona took this famous photograph of Jimmy, standing among other Apache, after Geronimo's surrender.
